For some prisoners however, other interventions such as education or health support will need to take priority over working.</p><p> </p><p>Prison Rules 1999 state that a convicted prisoner is required to do useful work for not more than 10 hours a day. In the year ending 2018, around 12,300 prisoners and detainees were working in custody at any one time. In addition to this, in the 12 months to March 2018, 2,224 risk-assessed prisoners were working in the community on ROTL. The number of hours worked by prisoners and detainees increased by 8% in the year to March 2018 with 17.2 million hours of work delivered in that year.</p><p> </p><p>Recognising the value of instilling a strong work ethic in prisoners and the positive impact that employment has on rates of reoffending, we have established the New Futures Network. The New Futures Network brokers partnerships between prisons and employers to improve employment outcomes for individuals whilst in prison and on release.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Law Commission review that the Government announced this June is a fundamental review of the law on how and where people can legally marry in England and Wales. As part of that review, the Government invited the Law Commission to make recommendations about how marriage by humanist and other non-religious belief organisations could be incorporated into a revised or new scheme for all marriages that is simple, fair and consistent. The Government will decide on provision on the basis of the Law Commission’s recommendations.</p><p> </p><p>Assessment of the potential merits of provision for non-religious belief marriages can be found in the consultation paper and response published by a previous Government in 2014 and available at justice.gov.uk.</p><p> </p><p>Exercising the power in section 14 of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 to provide for legally binding non-religious belief marriage, including humanist marriage, would provide a freedom to marry in a way that would not be available to many other people who wish to marry. That is why the Government asked the Law Commission to carry out a fundamental review of the law on how and where couples can marry. It is a law that has been added to over several centuries without any systematic reform.</p>
